'he Lord has provided an exhaustive amount of bless 
ngs from my summer experience in Jordan. Since my 
parents work as medical missionaries in Jordan, I was 
able to return home, live with my family, and revive my Ara- 
bic from the dusty corners of my brain. The Lord allowed me 
to make new friends, as well as learn more about the medical 
field through my daily routine. 

My summer day was filled with work in the hospital with 
the Arab people. I was able to attend various medical needs, 
and do other tasks such as paint, attend patient gospel meet- 
ings, and learn Arabic. One of the highlights of my day was to 

municating with the people. The language barrier between 
Arabic and English was quite large, and often I could not talk 
to the people or even understand what they were saying. In 
spite of the barriers, the people of Jordan were still some of the 
most friendly, hospitable people I have ever met. It did not 
matter that I could not speak with them, they treated me as a 
honored guest of their country. I am blessed to know the people 
of Jordan, and when I think of them I am reminded oi their 
friendly hearts and simple joys.

An Adventure 
3n MeJf 

Orientation week, it was the best of times, it was the 
worst of times. There was nothing to get out of bed 
for, hut there was everything to wake up for. The 
choices in the great hall were plenty, yet there was nothing to 
eat. There arose a man, a young college student, the first soul 
to greet me upon my arrival. His warmth and energy could not 
have been matched by any. Many more faces flooded by after 
his. The friendly and funny face of my RA from First Belz, my 
three new roommates, and my lovely small group leader. The 

outpouring of as- 
many faces that 
made the week 
short two years 
perienced Fresh- 
tion week, and 
able to sit back 
of the fun events 
can vividly re- 
grumbled when I 
my small group, 
other test. I 
found myself actually missing the events that surround the week 
this year. I longed to go and play all the get to know ya games, 
I actually wanted to go to the gathering the last night when 
you all walk down to the overlook, and sing before the student 
body. Freshmen Orientation week is a long week, with lots of 
things to accomplish, but hopefully most of us do have found 
memories of it.

There is a day starred on my calendar every semester 
that is not often found on many other college calen 
dars and that is Day of Prayer. No classes are held, no 
offices are open. This is a day set aside specifically for prayer. It 
is a gift from a college that aims to hold Christ pre-eminent to 
students who need a time to stop the business of college life 
and re-focus; it is to be spent however the individual chooses. 
Many halls take advantage of a chance to get together; there 
are numerous memories made during camp-outs, hikes, and 
picnics where halls grow closer to God and to each other.

willing to rise early over to Rock City to pray; it is still dark 
when heads bow and eyes close, but when the "Amen" is voiced, 
eyes open to catch the beauty of the sunrise. Also, the tradi- 
tion of the tower watch lives on: this is a 24-hour period in 
which there is always someone praying in the Carter Hall Tower. 
Barring all weather conditions- rain, snow, or shine, the day 
goes on and many people end their Day of Prayer with a re- 
newed spirit and thankful heart.

The Not-So-Explicit 

I'm picturing reading through my yearbook many years 
down the road and coming across all the sorts of yearbook 
articles that are always so typical. Do we have to be ob- 
jective when writing about events that turn up in the year- 
book? This is about Kilter by the way, Kilter 1997. Hula 
Mauka. What exactly is that anyway? Hula is a kind of dance. 
And Mauka? Is that some sort of outfit maybe? A grass skirt 
and coconut bikini top? Or maybe one of the other fine out- 
fits we had represented. There were mismatched tropical 
prints, black socks and sandals, Polynesian natives (brown fin- 
ger-paint pro- videdthetan), 
Gilligan's Island ,^_ characters, and 

random island/ ^J _ ^^^ tropics 

to BF (v*fc make 

bunch of tourists W% LI ^ later on. 

maybe Mauka JJ had something 

to do with the /y food. Hula for 

the dancing be- ^f cause of the 

,I1U> Uve band " v lS^fe^- that we had ' 

and Mauka for "W^& the tropical 

cuisine that we got to munch 

on. There was a roasted pig, and other island treats like baked 
beans and lemonade (we are so darn cultural!). Not to men- 
tion our decorations. Little umbrellas like the kind in frozen 
drinks (alcohol free, of course) and crepe paper palm trees 
everywhere. was all so grand! 

One final thought on this Hula Mauka thing though, and I 
think that this is probably the best explanation. It's a tropical 
expression for surprise or pleasure. Like how much fun we 
had after a rousing limbo match (hula mauka! ). But for me, it 
was just seeing my stunning date, the best of all. ..HULA

River_Break 1997 

fa WaMMietd? 

Perhaps the ideal fall break does not necessarily involve 
the associate dean of students and a professor in the 
backwoods of Alabama, but though Riverbreak was not 
necessarily ideal, it did exceed our expectations. Before we 
knew what we had gotten ourselves into, we were informed 
that our adventure was not just a break, but an experiment in 
education. Riverbreak was indeed a break from everyday life. 
We laughed, ate, and relaxed by the fire all week, but we also 
discovered a better way to learn. 

In another time zone, state, and culture (yet still on Lookout 
Mountain), is Mentone, Alabama- the setting of Riverbreak. 

We loaded our

Ketchin. We learned how "education and community work in 
tandem," as Barb put it. The mind-set of service dominated 
the week, as shown by chores and encouraging words. Also, 
we were free from the usual cliques (although, ironically, we 
are one now), classes and stresses, so we were free to be ourselves 
and comfortable with each other. This atmosphere of 
community, service, and freedom, allowed us to learn in a whole 
new way. 

Of course Riverbreak wouldn't be Riverbreak without a river. 
On Sunday afternoon, after a hike to the bottom oi the gorge, 
we got to know the Little River very well. A few other 
attractions and distractions included the Mentone's Colorfest, 
visits from some Covenant folk, hymn singing, nightly dance 
parties, discussions of Iowa, poetry and prose readings, and 
general revelation. As we learned with and from each other 
through discussions, service and community, we learned that 
the classroom is not the only place for education.

Burning at the Stage 

°)ve(wme ^&m^e! 

This year's homecoming was the largest yet at 
Covenant, with nearly 560 alumni in attendance. 
The weekend of October 24-25 was filled with events 
for both students and alumni. Friday evening marked the 
return of "Burning at the Stage," a growing homecoming 
tradition. Last year, the class presidents wanted to do 
something for the students on homecoming weekend and 
the result was "Burning at the Stage". Take Spotlight Cafe, 
move it to the Highlands soccer field and add a bonfire. The 
event was a howling success, resulting in this year's class 
presidents collaboration to carry on the tradition. This time 
around "Burning at 

the Stage" was expanded to 

become a fall S<^ festival. 

Although rain S^/ // forced the 

event to be j/s / , f% moved to the 

Great Hall, it y^ ' / fi was not 

seriously S* ' , A/ hampered. 

Booths lined S / / / the perimeter 

of the Great \/ / / Hall serving 

up snacks, \ / / cotton candy, 

coffee, and root >^ / heev floats. 

The juniors ^^ sponsored a 

pottery booth, which allowed 

the sculpting of masterpieces. The moon walk provided the 
touch of a county fair and was well received by all. Of course, 
"Burning at the Stage" would not be complete without the 
"stage". Six different groups performed throughout the 
evening, displaying a vast array of talents and musical styles. 
The highlight was definitely a rare appearance by Scott 
Anderson, "The Dancing Machine", as he accompanied 
Andrew Hobbs, Isaac Wardell, Rich Keesee, and Dave 
Kauffman in their rendition of U2's "Discotheque". Other 
events of the weekend included the Multicultural 
Extravaganza, the cross-country invitational, both men's and 
women's soccer games, and the return of the Homecoming 
Parade. Overall, the weekend was enjoyable for both students 
and alumni, as they celebrated yet another year of God's 
faithfulness to Covenant College.

The Long and Winding story of The All Souls, All

There was much excitement that day in anticipation of the 
party that night. We had classes and wanted to just get them

Founders Third Lobby (home to many famous events), was 
once again transformed into a madd party zone with all types

and began to set up the sound system and blast some tunes.

cousin twice removed and God's Property, Vanilla Ice, the 
Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, R.E.M., Bob Marley, and all types of 
other styles. The DJ was bombarded and harassed and treated 
like a robotic computeroid at times, but he had a good time 
too. The crowd danced and had food and drink. There was a 
contest for the best costume, bobbing for apples and a pin the

A Magical Tradition 

Christmas time in our family, as in many families, is 
full of tradition. One of those traditions is coming 
to the Madrigal Dinner. I remember the excitement 
that my parents shared as they returned to their alma mater for 
this festive occasion. I have been able to share in that excite- 
ment many times in my life as well. 

This tradition in my family began back in 1969, when my 
mother was part of the Madrigal Singers. That year, what used 
to be a simple affair featuring the singers in a post-dinner 
songfest, suddenly became quite an elaborate social event. 
Things like candlelight, soloists, a junior choir, a narrator, and 
even the boar's head, played their part in making an elegant

the dinner again in 1982, and my first experience was when I 
was twelve in 1989. Since 1982, members of my family have 
attended all except three dinners. It has become quite a 
tradition that we love to share with each other and other friends 
and family. 

The "evolution" oi the Madrigal Dinner continues. The 
production is now done three nights, and is full of Christmas 
music, both traditional and refreshingly unfamiliar, from the 
Madrigal Singers, a brass choir, and a Renaissance ensemble 
that was new to this year's dinner. The viands are overwhelm- 
ing, as they serve a full five-course meal with everything from 
wassail to flaming plum pudding. It is a night full of merriment 
and joy as we celebrate the birth of our LORD. In my family, it 
is the commencement of the Christmas holiday, and truly a 
grand and magical tradition.

Music, Laughter, and Fun... Madrigals Dinner is not only good food, but 
also fun times. Here the jester entertains the audience with his tunny tricks. The

Fun on Campus 

CAB managed another eventful year as it brought some 
unique activities to Covenant 's campus as well as some 
historic favorites. We began the year in line with tra- 
dition as Kilter lit up the Great Hall. "Hula Mauka", a Hawai- 
ian phrase literally translated into "dancing in the mountains", 
provided an appropriate theme, as hula dancers cluttered the 
dance floor and tacky tourists challenged the limbo stick. In 
another attempt to keep tradition, the Covenant community 
was given opportunities to snuggle-up under the stars for drive- 
in movie favorites (popcorn and soda provided an extra ro- 
mantic twist). We followed 
last year's con- cert theme by

And * 

Are Who? 

I was having trouble paying attention. It was chapel at the 
beginning of the year and we were in the midst of what 
seemed like fifty announcements as various clubs and stu- 
dent projects vied for our commitment. There had been sev- 
eral fairly interesting clubs mentioned so far, but none had 
grabbed my attention to the point that I was willing to commit 
to it that very instant. Then Nancy Young stepped up to the 
microphone. By the time she got out her first sentence, I was 
already sold.

Stage hand, cos- tume fluffer,

realized that participating in this play was an absolute neces-

Apparently I'm not the only one who holds the play in high 
regard. Professors Wildeman, Pettit, Foreman, and Hesselink 
were all surveyed and asked to each suggest several plays that 
they thought we should try to stage. Rosencrantz and Guildenstem 
Are Dead was the only play that appeared on all four lists. 

Maybe it was just the aggravating persistence of the ticket 
sellers, or maybe it was something else, but there seemed to be 
a general air of anticipation generated among the student body 
as well. That Friday night, the final performance, was one of, if 
not the largest crowds that Covenant Drama has ever witnessed.

There was an active group of students outside this year. 
Some went hiking, some went biking, some went to 
the underworld of caves, and there were even a few 
that found their home on cliffs. Whoever could get together 
at any miscellaneous time, would take the afternoon to find a 
harder climb, maybe Kayak at Little River Canyon, or, even 
better, practicing Kayak rolls in Covenant's pool during the 
winter! It wasn't uncommon to get "stuck" out climbing and 
somehow failing to return for class. 

Even though trips were usually spontaneous, last minute, 
and always with a slightly different group, all those involved 
became good friends. There is a stronger connection formed 
by hanging your life through someone else's hands, getting 
worn out together on a long ride, or going through that rapid 
upside down!

wanted to get a taste and have fun. But there was a unique 
bond between the people that couldn't be explained. We all 
went to different worlds together, and the ones who had been 
there with me, always caught my eye when we were back in 
Covenant land. Seeing them created an instant memory to 
the times God had provided elsewhere.

his year I had the awesome opportunity to spend my 
Spring Break on a Break on Impact trip to Northern 
Ireland. The team was made up of fourteen: Dot 
Hunter as our staff advisor, ten students from Covenant Col- 
lege, and three students from Mississippi State University. From 
day one we knew that this trip would be like no other missions 
trip any of us had ever been on. The team spent weeks prepar- 
ing for the evangelism that we would be doing in Northern 
Ireland. We arrived in Northern Ireland Sunday morning and 
John Moxen and the rest of his staff from Project Evangelism 
did not blink an eye before they put us to work. As we wit- 
nessed throughout the week it became more and more appar- 
ent to me and others in the group that the trip name, Break on 
Impact, was very significant. First, one must be broken and 
humbled before the Lord to 

work with these men, 

women, and g children. It 

was evident JifL t ^ at lt was 

Christ speaking rtaSK^ I through us as 

we shared the l]^|4^-^2lj Gospel oi 

Jesus Christ to (Pi those in a 

nearby army M camp, the 35 

or so Catholic H children that 

showed up at a §| Protestant 

church to hear g| the Word of 

the Lord pro- |j| claimed, and 

those at a pri- ' mary school 

in downtown Belfast. 

This trip also impacted each of our lives greatly. I have 
never been on a trip in which you could see the eagerness of 
those wanting to know Christ so vivid in their eyes. Joey, one 
of our team members from MSU got the chance to share the 
Gospel with a little boy named Sean who could not stop shak- 
ing because he was so eager to pray to the Lord. God also 
proclaimed Himself by the beautiful surroundings of Northern 
Ireland. Each day that we were there we caught a glimpse of 
God's creativity. There are endless stories that any one of us 
can tell you about God's goodness and faithfulness to us on our 
Break on Impact trip to Northern Ireland. I praise Him for the 
opportunity to serve Him.

Several Covenant students and alumni took advantage

two of those adventurous people. We had studied together in 
1995 in the Czech Republic and directed our newest adven-

We spent a few days in Vienna, a few days in Prague, an after-

Leah and I had similar impressions of this trip. Having been 
to the same places together three years previously, we immedi- 
ately went back to our common favorites and took each other 
to any sights the other missed on our first trip to Eastern Eu- 
rope. These jaunts included Sacher Torte at the Hotel Sacher 
and Kunsthistoriches Museum in Vienna. In Prague we visited 
Hradcany Castle, Saint Vitas Cathedral (our favorite cathe- 
dral anywhere), and numerous strolls down the Charles Bridge. 
We also enjoyed a nostalgic lunch at Big Ben in Olomouc with 
our favorite foods, lots of chocolate, and took delight in find- 
ing that things were still unchanged. Prague was our favorite 
city in 1995 and it still is in 1998.

and Times 

Covenant's student ministries are closely connected with 
Covenant's chapel program because ministry can be 
one constant way of responding to the challenges 
brought forth through examining God's word. Although Isaiah 
reminds us that all of our good works 

are but filthy rags, ^^Sa J ames tells believers 

that faith with- Wl# out works is dead. 

Thus, ministry in ^*^X fk/i&p any form is a natu- 
ral response of \^\l\w^Sf God's children to 
His works of love \ ^ dbs* and merc y in their 

Both -^fefe. M Covenant's chapel 

program and its ^5S§^ academic curricu-

nize God's gifts to ^^m hls children. By 

sharing God's V^^ § ifts °f time ' ears '

Philippians 4:5 



The question of what kind of flower Blackwatch would 
be raises some very deep metaphysical and theological 
questions. Questions such as... Do flowers exist or do we 
only have the image of a flower in our heads? And, are 
there truly different types of flowers or are those names 
just an attempt by the human mind to take control of 

Theologically, how can we compare ourselves with a 
flower when a flower is finite in its existence while we 
on the other hand are eternal, at least in spirit? Another 
question also raised by this topic is the issue discussed in 
Self in Society - Did Jesus come to earth to save man 
and thus bring about man's sanctification or did he want 

us to strive for the sanctification of the world as well? 

With all of these musings in mind, the answer to the 
question is a Tiger-lily. This unique flower is symbolic of 
the brotherhood of Blackwatch. A "wise" philosopher, 
Greg Thompson, was the founder of the "Tiger." Through 
his mysterious ways, Greg referred to people as Tiger. This 
soon was picked up by other members of the hall as a 
reference to comrads. Eventually, Mr. Thompson was re- 
ferred to only as Tiger, hence the beginning of the tradi- 
tional naming of the Tiger. But now that Greg has moved 
on in life, we continue the quest of seeking after the Ti- 
ger. And that is why we are best exemplified by the Ti-

Once upon a time, a princess named Little Red Riding Hood 
had a very strange dream that she was sent by her fairy godmother 
to discover the seven essences of life. As she set out on her jour- 
ney from Balconville, she passed a tall tower with a beautiful young 
girl in it. LRRH called out to her, "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down 
your hair." At that, the girl obeyed. Suddenly, the tower trans- 
formed into a huge choclate bar. "Essence #1" was inscribed on 
the wrapper, so LRRH proceeded to drag the chocolate bar with 
her. As she entered a forest, she noticed a very bubbly curly haired 
girl picking up red Skittles from the ground. LRRH questioned 
the girl as to what she was doing, to which the curly haired girl 
replied, "I was lost in the woods, but these strawberry Skittles will 

Skipping along, she came to a giant beanstalk. Spying a little 
boy not too far away, she asksed him what the bean stalk was for. 
He inadvertantly transformed into a pumpkin. On it was a sign 
which read, "Open me-lots of surprises inside!!" Much to her de- 
light, there was a can of spaghetti-o's and a glass of milk enveloped 
in bubble- wrap and taped together tightly! "Wow!" exlaimed 
LRRH, "four essences in one pumpkin!" Joyfully she continued on 
her way, humming a Bangles song and doing a few interpretive 
dances as she looked for the final essence. After a long hike she 
saw a shimmering something in the distance. The final essence! 
She ran toward the vision in slow motion with Chariots of Fire 
playing softly in the background. It was a hairbmsh with the words

Long ago, in a land far away, there lived a famous ruler 
named King Green. He was a well loved king who led the small 
kingdom of Catacombs on great adventures. Although he only 
had twenty-one subjects, his kingdom was a mighty bastion of 

One day, Thomasina was reminiscing while on a date with 
one Cold Fish Walton. She remembered her childhood, after 
which she proceeded to put her lipstick all over her face. Cold 
Fish Walton was astonished and ran out with Thomasina, leav- 
ing their pea soup to cool. 

The vagabonds of Catacombs were at their usual antics of 
vandalizing cement pads. Fortunately the strange reoccurring 
character appeared on the scene and frightened the young men 

One day, while the twenty-one subjects were eating their 

pea soup, King Green was hit by a bucket of filth from above 
and became the evil Janitor. He was joined by his accomplice 
Nerd Boy. All of the subjects were afraid of the consequences 
to their small kingdom. 

A strange reoccurring character said that the only way to 
end this curse was to face the Janitor in fierce body to body | 
combat in a mystical place he called TWA. So, the team Boys 
and Ivy volunteered to fight the Janitor. The day came to fight. 
With the support of the local tribe of primitive rednecks, Boys 
and Ivy beat the Janitor, breaking the curse. 

On Saint Andreas Day, all the people turned out in their 
best to celebrate the breaking of the evil curse. All was well 
with the Kingdom of Catacombs once again and everyone lived 
happily ever after.

snacks during the annual examination week because the 
land naturally developed its own products for the prin- 
cess to enjoy. 

The girls in this particular kingdom were dedicated to 
working out daily and the princes in surrounding king- 
doms knew not to mess with them. In fact, it was for their 
own well being that they did not upset these valiant prin- 
cesses. Some were known to have the skills of karate and 
all were cultured in the art of self defense. 

One night some princes in a lower kingdom decided to 
attack the land of Fifth North. This poor army of princes 
were in for a surprise. They did not have a chance against 
the mighty princesses. The Fifth North princesses were 
not only stronger, but they had the blessing of the Candy 
Corn Buddha. After a fierce battle, the princes were 
forced to retreat in haste. They returned to their country 
with a new found respect and admiration for the women 
of Fifth North. Once again the warrior princesses were 

To celebrate their victory, the princesses put on some 
Janet Jackson and En Vogue and had a huge dance party. 
And they all lived happily ever after in their magic king-

Once upon a time, in the land of Camelot, there lived 
twenty-six princesses. These twenty-six princesses lived 
under one King, but held in their hands many different 
riches. Each priceless treasure was gained from slaying a 
different dragon and through a different land. Although 
each princess experienced a unique battle, they all could 
find comfort in each other. Through laughter, tears, and 
embraces all twenty-six princesses came together in their 
castle on Fifth South.

We are a hodgepodge of people. We don't have many a studious hall, but we also balance our studies with many 

traditions. In fact, in the past four years there has been other activities. Some of these activities include: explor- 

only one tradition that seems to have characterized the ing the campus in all of its mystery, intramural sports 

"personality" of our hall. Somehow we attract some of (in which we are intramural champions in football, and 

the most unique individuals who really have nothing in have participated in all the other events), coming up 
common. Yet we always have good fellowship and great 
unity despite the diversity that exists between us. The 

seniors on this hall who have lived the duration of their 
college years on this hall, find exceeding joy and delight 
in this fact. 

We seem to be thought of as a quiet hall, but if 
one were to spend even the slightest amount of time on 
our hall they would see that this is not the case. We are 

with the winning skit for Founders Skit Night '97 (and 
the second place skit for '96), finding the ark in '96, and 
receiving third place in the homecoming parade in '97 
(out of three entries). 

As one can see First Belz is a unique, yet diverse group 
of men.

To the girls on Fourth Central: 

God from the beginning of time and before has been a 
God of unity! I see small glimpses of his unity through 
the unity of the girls on Fourth Central. You are always 
there for me and for each other. You pray for, uphold, 
love, encourage, understand, have compassion for, accept, 
know, have joy with, are patient with, are kind to, are 
good to, show faithfulness to, and invite growth in me 
and each other.

The fog was so thick on the mountain that night, 

From Carter the chapel was lost out of sight. 

The voice on the phone was that of young Chris, 

The love of fair Stephanie telleth her this 

"Dear one, warn your hall mates; be ready for flight, 

For the British attack the Scots tonight!" 

So into the hallway did Stephanie run 

And shouted the warning to everyone. 

But all of Fourth South was asleep and was hushed 

Save the maid in the towel singing "Where's my hairbrush?" 

"Come Lisa!" said Steph, "we have no time to lose! 

The red-coats are coming- 1 just got the news!" 

"Fear not, friend," said Lisa, "I know what to do. 

Climb up to the tower, take two lanterns with you. 

I shall be ready to ride and spread the alarm 

Through Carter and Belz and Schmidt and Rayburn." 

So Stephanie Sligh, as fair as a flower, 

Raced with her lanterns up into the tower. 

Meanwhile, dear Lisa, yet stood with her steed, 

And peered toward the tower, seeing two lights indeed!" 

So into the fog she did gallop and cry 

A warning to all that the British were nigh. 

You know the rest. In the books you have read, 

How the rest of Fourth South all jumped out of their beds 

And mustered their forces to stop the attack 

And defeated the British, but did Lisa come back? 

Alas, it was somewhere 'tween Founders and Mills 

The fog claimed her. They say she still wanders those hills. 

And at midnight, oft times, you can still hear her cry 

A warning to all that the British are nigh.

Once upon a time, not too long ago, in a small colony out 
in the woods, lived twenty-three young women. These 
women each had their own dreams that they were pursuing, 
but managed to enjoy the company of each other. They 
would gather with their brother colony (2nd Belz) to sing 
and roast marshmallows around a bonfire. Other mischie- 

passed on for generations. 

One day, while walking through the colony, a furry little 
critter came through the door of one of the huts. Shocking 
all of us, he waddled into the room, sniffing and nibbling 
our stocking feet. His cuteness was overpowering, but he 
began to grow on us. His breed was ferret and we named 

vous tasks consisted of stealing pillows and freezing their him Herman. We placed him as our mascot because he also 

cases to earn a medal and the initiation of their new sisters. 
The colony had many unique qualities about them. One 
was Herman. You might be asking yourself, "What the heck 
is Herman?" Well, Herman is a bread that became an im- 
portant part of the colony a year ago and it had somewhat 
been a unifying aspect for everyone. The bread is still being 
baked and the women became favorable to baking the bread 
(and eating it at gatherings), and it became a tradition to be 

would be remembered by the colony and would be one of 
the many stories that would be passed on for generations. 

The twenty-three young women glowed with the love of 
the Lord, and shared that with the other colonies in the 
Kingdom of Covenant. These women were affectionately 
known as the Women of the Colony, Gallery (or Gal Girls).

Once upon a time, in a magical place called 
Carterland, there lived a group of folks in a little ham- 
let called Ghetto. 

The members of this race were, in general, bald (with 
a few exceptions who were teased at birthday parties and 
other social occasions), male, and between the ages of 
18 and 21. They were known to sometimes don wife- 
beaters and toot brass instruments for no readily appar- 
ent reason. Most were nocturnal creatures, who spoke 
longingly of "sleepy-town" when daylight came. 

Rumors abound throughout Carterland concerning 
what went on in Ghetto when all the Carterlanders were 

asleep. Some said the Ghetto-dwellers swallowed swords I 
and breathed fire. Others alleged that they bowled all I 
night, (and that's why we have thunder). There were evenl 
stories whispered in dark corners of Sega "FIFA '97 SOC-l 
CER" tournaments 'til the wee hours. ..(can you imag-l 

The Ghetto-dwellers spent four years going on excit- 
ing adventures, slaying dragons, attending soccer games, 
rescuing maidens in distress, playing frisbee golf, over- 
taking fortresses, storming castles, and reading many 
books along the way. 

"And the peasants rejoiced."

The banana split is the ultimate dessert with all its 
varied flavors and textures. All of the different ingredi- 
ents represent the unique personalities on Highlands. 
IWhen making a banana split, of course you must include 
the quiet and gentle sweetness of vanilla ice cream, which 
brings to mind Sherry Eubank, Jo Chinchen, and Esther 

Next, you add the toppings. Stacy Cason, Julie 
Swanson, and Holly Eubank are tangy and spunky like 
strawberries. Hot fudge is comforting and warm, like Sa- 
rah Donaldson and Sarah Fleugge. Pineapple topping is 
sunshiney and makes you smile, like Katie Anderson, 

Allison Atkins, and Aarin Clark. Emma Keen and Jamie 
White are like caramel-genuinely sweet. 

The most fun one has making a banana split is adding 
the extras. Megan Mcllhenny, Nellie Vaughn, and Meg 
Hayes have multicolored personalities, like rainbow 
sprinkles. Nuts are flavorfully funny, like Lisa Ayres, 
Jenny Pruitt, and Katie Jordan. Tammy Luchenbill, Katy 
Morgan, and Jennifer Lefler are like cherries-bright and 

Finally, you can't forget the banana-Shauna deBoer- 
both for the funny yellow dress she wears and for her hi- 
larious personality. 

Ring around the rosie... Shauna de Boer, Julie Swanson, Katie Anderson, 
and Jamie White play a game on Highlands.

Once upon a time there was a jungle maiden who lived in a small 
village with a pet mosquito. Everyone in the village ate oatmeal and 
were very happy. One night the dastardly cereal raider stole all of the 
villagers' oatmeal fields. The jungle maiden felt very sad. "I will go on a 
quest with my mosquito to find some more food," she said. That night, 
while she was sleeping, the jungle maiden had a vision of a celestial 
chilli pepper. When she awoke, she said to her mosquito, "I know what 
we need, but I can't remember what it is." By and by, they came upon 
an exotic Skyebird and a colorful Lizbird. They had dyed their feathers 
red. "Red!" exclaimed the jungle maiden. "The thing in my dream was 
red!" The two continued on in their quest and some time later they 
came across Lady Jenny who was watching "Veggie Tales." "A veg- 
etable ! " proclaimed the jungle maiden. "It was a red vegetable ! " "Camille 
and Allison have some lovely pictures of colored vegetables," suggested 
Lady Jenny helpfully. So, the jungle maiden found her way to Camille 
and Allison's Coloring Wall of Fame. They directed her attention to 
an exquisite picture of a red chilli pepper. "We must find the Land of 
Chilli!" exclaimed the maiden. As it happened, the jungle maiden and 
her faithful sidekick came upon Lady Laurel reading poetry to a warm 
and fuzzy moose. "Do you know where we can find the Land of Chilli?" 
inquired the jungle maiden. Lady Laurel pointed them to the North 
and the jungle maiden resumed her quest with vigor. All of a sudden, 
the dastardly cereal raider leaped out from behind a vine and attacked 
the jungle maiden in order to steal her oatmeal rations. But lo and 
behold, Tesia, the red ninja dropped out of a tree and kickboxed the 
dastardly cereal raider mercilessly while kiko, the peasant cheerleader, 
cheered her on. After the jungle maiden had thanked Tesia profusely,

Tesia escorted the cereal raider to Dr. Dawn for counseling. Having 
fully recovered, the jungle maiden and her flustered mosquito progressed 
toward the Land of Chilli. And so it came to pass that they met the 
illusive tribe of Mosquito Squashers (Laini, Mindy, Julie, and Michelle). 
Before the tribe could squash the jungle maiden's mosquito, he did 
some tricks to make them swoon with laughter, allowing them enough 
time for a hasty retreat. Next, the pair passed a burning cottage from 
which Sir Jake and just rescued Lady Angie. Firefighter Rachel success- 
fully put it out. "Wow! I just put out a red hot one!" she said. Finally, the 
jungle maiden arrived at the Land of Chilli and made her way to the 
castle of Princess Lycia. Kim, the court musician, greeted her with a 
drum salute. The drawbridge to the castle was broken, so Lady Allison 
assisted the jungle maiden by spiking her over the moat. Lady Sarah 
gave the jungle maiden a big hug and a kiss on the cheek and escorted 
her to the washroom to freshen up for dinner. But Lady Sarah Knox 
was taking a very long shower, so the jungle maiden was late for dinner. 
When she made her entrance at the Great Hall, the jungle maiden was 
surprised to see everyone she had met along the way. She also met 
Princess Lycia who introduced her to Prince Penthouse. He said to the 
jungle maiden, "You are the best maiden in the whole kingdom be- 
cause you are not flirty." The jungle maiden sarcastically replied, 'You 
mom!" Then they all sat down to a delicious meal of oatmeal seasoned 
with chilli peppers. The jungle maiden thanked Princess Lycia and 
returned to her village with some new oatmeal fields. After she had left, 
Lady Elizabeth entered the Great Hall and announced cheerfully, 
"Rehearsal's over; did I miss anything?" 

Welcome to the jungle. 




Fall of 1997 represented a new beginning for Pent- 
house. It is new in the fact that seventeen of the hall's 
twenty-two residents were either freshmen or transfer 
students. Of the remaining five, only three lived on 
Penthouse last year. 

Penthouse RA, Justin Corder, is not only new to the 
hall, but is the youngest RA in Founders as well. This 
has not in any way prevented growth but has brought 
creativity and fun to the hall. 

This year stands out as rebirth for Penthouse. Its 
members are building the hall from ground up, repre- 
senting a conglomerate of personality types and inter- 

ests. Penthouse is not a hall of similar individuals or a 
single interest clique, but rather a balanced group of 
diverse students united by their appreciation of indi- 
viduals' differences. 

And, as if that is not enough coolness for one hall, 
chicks really dig us too. During open dorms, you won't 
see Penthouse boys sitting in their rooms alone. 

Call it an unexplainable phenomenon, a strange co- 
incidence, or divine predestination, but somehow the 
most "money" twenty-two males at Covenant ended up 
together on the same hall, Penthouse.

The computer terminal is in pastel blue and pink, the colors 
carefully chosen to help soothe any anxiety that you may have 
about the trip. You step up and insert your boarding pass. You 
glance around, wondering why you decided to take the trip. 
You've heard great things about the River, but in fact, don't 
know much about it. You've certainly never met someone who's 
been there. "Thank you. You may board." 

You pick up your bag and move to the first sleek gondola. 
Your guide greets you with a smile that's too cheery to be fake 
and seats you with the other passengers. "Everybody ready?" he 
asks. No one responds, but he remains unphased. "Okay. Wel- 
come to your intorductory tour of the River. As most of you 
know, the River is a trans water- it passes through a series of

such rich socieities and such scenic beauty that you'll never 
have enough time to take it all in, anyway. Despite the mixing 
of culture, pleasure, and trade brought about by man's creation 
of the River, each of these worlds has managed to maintain its 
own unique traditions. Each planet is an island in space in and 
of itself, but because they each share the River, they are each 
connecteed to something much greater than the sum of its parts. 
The soft thrum of the aqua engines below the deck of the 
gondola begin. You watch the shore as it is pushed away by the 
edge of the transwater, then you raise your hand, lean forward 
and say, "I have a question." The guide replies, "Hey, feel free 
to ask me anything. That's what I'm here for." 

"I was just wondering what the name of this boat is."

In the forest of Lookout Mountain, Georgia, there is an 
ancient cave. All types of inhabitants existed there. But it 
was mostly a BAT cave. These Bats were known around the 
area for all types of deeds and things. When there was crime, 
the Bats were there. Perhaps robots were needed to patrol. 
These Bats were in control. And frequently there were se- 
curity problems on the mountain, particularly the area sur- 
rounding the BAT CAVE. So the highly skilled Bats get 
together all their security equipment and scanned the area, 
made checks, recorded important data, and took readings. 
In addition to their duties, they also enjoyed what it was. 
They were known to have a good time. And a good time 
was had by those who were in existence around their brains. 
Ask and it shall be proven. 

Exciting things happen when the Bats happened to share 
their ontological status with other humanoids, robots, 
robotoids, and other types of beings. They like to perform 
spontaneous raps at any given moment without warning. 
However, Reader, you must beware. These Bats are not just 
for a good time, they are an important service to the col- 
lege. If you are familiar with the campus of Covenant Col- 
lege, you may understand what happens next. There are 
hidden Bats working secretly in the following departments: 

It is exciting. Come by the BAT cave one time and you 
shall see all the skills represented on BAT CAVE 2ND BELZ.

many glasses of Kool-Aid can you drink?"

In the year of the Luthelites, eleven years post-war venturing there 
was a clan in the northern expanse known as the Retrac clan. It was a 
savage group of dirty men The Retrac clan would venture south into 
mid-sized towns like Turboken and Doerbek killing the cows arid women 
alike, returning satisfied only by victory. They were a feared people. 
Then one day a young woman from the Retrac tribe dishonored them 
all. Diepazyap left: secretively south on a cold winter night to meet with 
the people of Klockenburst This information she gave might have well 
been the living heart of the Retrac clan; for it had the movements of all 
its people and war plans, stuff that you just don't want your enemy 
getting. She returned with a heavy purse. When she returned she was 
hung for treason. The tribe was dishonored and distressed. They had 
been skewered from the inside.. .and it hurt.. .hurt like pain...the kind 
that really hurts.. .the tribe split into three sections because of different 
opinions. Three leaders quickly arose, greedily grabbing a position in 
authority, offering a bewildered people solace in a time of chaos. The 

first and most honorable of the leaders was Lupiot, a young farmer 
who's wife died several years ago. He was trying to assemble a group to 
go farther north and start over. He was the mark of hope in the tribe; 
always full of enthusiasm and a few heavy words. The second man was 
Kimlorbintotinastosemkindlyplease, the brother of Lupiot. He prom- 
ised the people a time of victory and peace if they attacked their en- 
emies to the south. No one liked spontaneous violence in the Retrac 
clan, so they hung Kimlorbintotinastosem-kindlyplease. The third leader 
was a beautiful cocker spaniel who offered his people protection, but 
they killed and ate the cocker spaniel. So, the people followed Lupiot's 
words and gathered their belongings and headed north. It was cold up 
north so the people made ice knives and ran down south quickly and 
killed all their enemies before their ice knives melted. The victorious 
Retrac clan has conquered their enemies. Ice is our friend... but, my 
sweet child, ice is also very cold. Cold like hearts of the now-vio- 
lent Retrac clan. So, to this day, the Retrac clan eats only ice. 

Yummm.'... The men of Second South frequently take advantage of their grill to 
further refine their cullinary skills.

Once upon a time, there was a little town called Bluffsville. 
It was a very pleasant place to live and the people appreciated 
the fact that they could have their privacy and live indepen- 
dently. Some of the residents of Bluffsville, however, worried 
that no one knew about their beautiful town and as a result, no 
one could hear their opinion on issues. 

As the years wnet by, the people of Bluffsville and the 
appoined officials became more frustrated at the fact that they 
were not included in the countywide carnivals and other festi- 
vals that took place during the year. They did not like feeling 
isolated and out of touch with the social events that took place. 
They decided they must do something, but what? 

One day, a hero flew into the town and landed right in the 
middle of Bluffsville. The people made her feel very welcome, 
even though they wondered why she had come to their small

town. They soon found out that she had come to help make 
the residents of Bluffsville more content. As time went by, the 
people started to notice several positive changes since "the Lady 
who could fly" came into town. With the help of the local 
officials, she started to unite Bluffsville with the surrounding 
towns. People from nearby villages started visiting Bluffsville 
and most important, the people of Bluffsville felt like they were 
more informed on what was going on - when people had sug- 
gestions on how to make the town a better place to live, she 
was always ready to listen and take action. 

The people started referring to their hero as RD, because 
she was Really Dependable. Since the RD came to Bluffsville, 
there has been harmony in the town, and the people have full 
confidence that it will remain that way.

Once upon a time, there were a vast number of beautiful 
flowers found in the far corners of the earth. It was decided 
that the royal princess o( Covenant College would find the 
rarest, most beautiful flower, and surround herself with its ex- 
quisite beauty. A royal pronouncement was made to present 
the fairest flower of the Kingdom before the princess. Brought 
to her were exotic orchids, whose rarity intimated a sense of 
mystery. There were dainty daisies, whose beauty was found 
in simple elegance. There were multi-colored roses that had 
in each petal a drop of romance. Daffodils, which exuded sun- 
shine, and morning glories, that reflected the radiance of a 
brilliant sunset. 

Each of these flowers were brought in separate vases to the 
princess. The princess looked at each rare flower and began to 
weep. Her Resident Director wrapped her arms around the 

princess and tried to comfort her by asking, "Whatever is the 
matter, my dear princess?" "Oh," cried she, "each flower is so 
beautiful and unique in itself, however will I pick my favorite?" 
No one seemed to be able to come up with a solution for the 
distress of the princess. 

One day an old stranger passed through the land and heard 
of the princess' grief. He requested an audience with her and 
told her, "My dear, why not put all the flowers together in a 
bouquet and let them shine?" The princess was ecstatic about 
this idea and immediately ordered that this be done. 

Individually, the flowers were stunning, but when placed 
together, there was never such a beautiful sight to be seen. 
People came from far and wide to see the exquisite breathtak- 
ing ensem the princess' flowers.

Boring? Never.'... Third South girls go for a spontaneous swim. 


Once upon a time in the enchanted kingdom of Third South, 
in the land of Covenant, there lived 26 beautiful princesses. In 
order to earn the title of Lady in their kingdom, they adventurously 
dined at the International House of Crumpets at an hour when 
the rest of the land was tucked safe in their beds dreaming of slay- 
ing CHOW homework and dancing at the merry festival of Kilter. 

For amusement, these young maidens loved to frolic at a game 
they affectionately deemed "take your aggressions out on fellow 
Covenantians," also known as intramural soccer. The princesses 
enjoyed their weekly Bible studies and hall meetings in which 
among other things they lamented over troubles with the knights 
of Covenant, taking comfort in Psalm 57:3. They also had the 
traditional Thursday night gathering, where they congregated to 
watch ER and discussed afterwards the correct handling of blood- 
born pathogens. 


One of the tragedies in the lives of the princesses of Third South 
was that whenever they tried to plan outings with the manly knights 
who resided in nearby kingdoms, a rain cloud was always there to 
give them trials and tribulations. Good triumphed over evil though, 
because the princesses smiled and persevered in joy on their rainy 
Day of Prayer camping trip, their rainy hall feast, and their rainy 
evening of carving pumpkins. 

The best thing about the lives of the Third South princesses 
was that they truly care for one another and loved to spend time 
together in good conversation and evenings filled with laughter. 
Although Lady Jenny liked to streak through the usually peaceful 
kingdom, and Ladies Cherith and Erin were known to display their 
undergarments on the announcement board, the rest of the prin- 
cesses forgave their wavering mental health and did not throw 
them in the dungeon. And they all lived happily ever after. 

The End.

Isaiah 43:13a 

{Pkwtdm J997 

An unknown world awaits me. 

The Lord leads my soul away, 

He says, "Forget your past, 

Push forward to the goal, 

And hand Me your fears each day." 

"I am your stronghold in a day of trouble." 
Well Lord, that day is now. 
I am trapped by my fears, 
As each day draws closer, 

Please hold back my tears or tell me how. 

Lord my faith in you is still strong, 
And I have no doubt you're by my side, 

I thank you for this chance, 
To learn more than I've imagined, 

So please don't let me hide. 

Oh Lord how awesome you are! 

You knew my fears before they came to be, 

You are always close, 

You put your arms around my soul, 

And you say, "Child, give these fears to Me." 

"My burden is easy," He said. 

"And my yoke is light. 

I carried the cross on my shoulder for you, 

I am strong, 

And will carry your fears tonight." 

What can you say to Jesus 

When He makes an offer like such? 

You accept His strength, 

Lest His love overwhelm you, 

And say, "For me why do you care so much?" 

"Have I not told you, 

That my love for you is great? 

I would die for you, 

Go to hell for your sin, 

So that my Father would open the gate." 

"Enter through the narrow gate, 

And join My Father at His throne, 

There is already a place prepared for you, 

Go in, 

And you shall never be alone." 

"So Lord these fears I have, 

You offer to take them away? 

You carried the cross, 

Died and were treated with shame, 

So that I would have a place to stay." 

An unknown world awaits me, 

But to my Savior it is His backyard, 

He will show me around, 

He will lead my heart, 

And from me He will never go far.

The root meaning of the word "Sabbath" is to cease, or to de- 
sist. After six days of labor, God stopped his creation work, rested, 
and was refreshed. After six years of sowing, pruning, and gather- 
ing, the land was to lay fallow for one year. After six years of labor 
at Covenent College, faculty members are allowed, even encour- 
aged, to rest from their ordinary academic labors and be refreshed 
through other pursuits and experiences. I was granted such a sab- 
batical during the spring semester of 1997. Here are some of my 
activities and their effects on me from my semester of refreshment. 

The Sonship course of World Harvest Mission 

~ a crumbling of my personal self-protective, self righteous kingdom, 
and the beginning of a pursuit to know what it means to live in the 
Gospel and the righteousness of Christ. 

A couse with Dr. Larry Crabb offered through Reformed Theo- 
logical Seminary 

~ a challenge to learrn a whole new way of relating to people in pain, 
not as their professional problem solver, but as one who connects with 
wounded and disconnected souls. 

A week at the L'Arche Community in Mobile, AL 

~ an experience in loving and being loved apart from what you can 
"do;" an understanding of what it means to be a shepherd to broken 
people; a sense of how important the acknowledgment of brokenness 
is to the building of true community. 

Two weeks at Mepkin Abbey near Charleston, SC 

~ a challenge to see and experience worship as the primary thing in 
life; an understanding that worship is more than just cerebral, and 
more than a sermon; a challenge to move toward simplicity and order 
from the normal chaos of life. 

Hello there little cutie... Professor Ray Clark travelled with 
Graham to Latvia along with Mrs. Clark and Dr. Tim Evearitt. 

Two weeks in Latvia to work with Christian teachers in their 
recently acquired freedom from Communism 

~ the joy of teaching "grace" to those who have lived under oppressive 
law all their lives; the joy of feeding hungry minds and souls with the 
meaning of biblical truth for their teaching; the extending of my small, 
narrow-minded world; watching God direct me in a ministry where I 
had virtually no control over anything. 

The revision of my book for teachers now entitled Teaching 

~ a renewed and expanded vision for what biblical truth should mean 
to those who teach, this time including a concern for what God's grace 
might mean to the way we educate. 

I take all these refreshing things as God's loving gifts to me, and 
I pray for the power of Christ to pursue the visions which have 
developed because of them. I believe this was a sabbatical worthy 
of the name.

The artist's eye... Art minor Grace White concentrates while 
sketching in Covenant's chapel. 

Psalm 90: 17 says, "And let the beauty of the Lord our God 
be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for you; yes, 
establish the work of our hands." Because beauty comes from 
God, the creator of everything that is good, Christians ought 
to praise Him for the beauty in this world. Even though it is 
fallen in sin, this is the same world about which God declared, 
"It is good." A Christian artist can understand the marvelous 
nature of creation better than a non-Christian, and it is impor- 
tant that he show his worldview through his art, as a testi- 
mony of love for God. 

One Covenant College art student, Chris Ammons, ap- 
proaches art with the desire to glorify the Lord. But, he real- 
izes that his work does not have to be "Christian art" about 
Biblical incidents or truths in order to please God. "All art, 
unless it is sacreligious, brings glory to God through the act 
of Creation," he believes. Creativity is one characteristic that 
comes from being made in God's image. Nature, like art, can 
praise God without telling stories or teaching doctrine; it sim- 
ply displays the Lord's beauty and creativity. 

There is no single "Christian art" style at this college. Erin 
Petrella paints figures in black and white oil paints, and I make 
prints and pencil drawings of musicians. Joshua Caleb Green's 
impressionist-surrealist style was influenced by European 
museums he visited while studying in the Czech Republic. 
Ty Williams and Brent Jackson are in charge of a relatively 
new pottery club. Raven Crown, from the photography class, 
took some of her favorite photographs in Europe last spring. 
Jill Mullins loves to photograph elderly people because she 
can see their life experience and wisdom in their faces. 
Covenant's artists certainly offer a diverse sampling of cre- 
ativity and God-given talents!

Youth Ministry... Matt Kimbrell and Erin Lively have gone 
through hen Teague's Youth Ministry class and spend much of 
their free time doing what they do best, ministering. Here they 
are at Young Life Camp with some of the other staff. 

As I thought about sharing my experience ministering 
to teenagers, African American teenagers living in one of 
the poorest housing projects in Chattanooga, a few memo- 
ries of a time I could see measurable change in one of our 
boys' and girls' lives came into mind. Most of my thoughts, 
though, were filled with memories of heartbreak and feel- 
ings of helplessness. And then I thought, perhaps these are 
what I need to write about... 

I do not intend to share a story though. I want to share 
the way in which God used my broken heart, my feelings of 
helplessness, and the teenagers who caused these to change 
my life. 

As I came to know these teenagers, I came to know their 
vast needs. I was faced with children who had children of 
their own, violence, poverty... more than I can begin to 
describe. Even harder to accept than their needs, though, 
were the walls which seemed insurmountable, the rivers 
which seemed too wide to bridge. The more I saw the depth 
of their needs, the more I saw my lack of ability to meet 
their needs. I felt trapped by my culture and distanced by 
my lack of suffering. I became painfully aware... I had little 
to give. For a while, I was overwhelmed, drowning in my 
helplessness. And it was there, in the deep pool of my weak- 
ness, I came to understand the even deeper ocean of God's 
strength as I never had before. 

I still experience heartbreak as I walk alongside of these 
teenagers I have come to love. I am learning not to feel 
helpless, though, because I am not the source of help. I am 
learning I do not possess the balm which will heal their 
wounded hearts, only the hands, which I offer to God, and 
He may choose to use to use to apply it.

Around 7:00 a.m. I arrived at the Hamilton County Pa- 
trol Center in Red Rank for my first experience in a ride- 
along. I met with Chief Tommy Standifer as well as an of- 
ficer Max Templeton who I would ride with for the next 
nine hours. 

I began the day at The Hamilton County Court House 
where officer Templeton was needed for a court appearance. 
I was given permission to sit with the officers on the side 
bench during court. Officer Templeton had one of the most 
interesting violations. One defendant was written a viola- 
tion for running a train red light earlier in December. While 
in court, the defendant claimed that he should not be re- 
sponsible for the ticket. He asked the judge to call Queen 
Elizabeth and tell her that Prince Charles was having diffi- 
culty at court. He actually believed that he was royalty and 
that he wouldn't have to pay for the ticket or court fees. I 
recall myself, as well as the whole court room erupting into 

After sitting in court for three hours, Officer Templeton 
and I rode back to Red Bank and Soddy Daisy where patrol 
began. We drove up and down Highway 27 in pursuit of 
speed violators for two hours. Our most exciting and only 
high speed pursuit was at the end of the two hours. Officer 
Templeton's radar gun clocked a Ford Probe going 81 mph 
in a 65 mph zone. Because we were heading in the opposite 
direction of the vehicle, Officer Templeton made a u-turn 
in the grass medium in order to pursue the violator. Before I 
knew it, our patrol car was cruising at 1 15mph. Within sec- 
onds, Officer Templeton caught up with the Probe and pulled 
it over. The woman driving the vehicle was cited with a 
ticket of excessive speed. 

After lunch was over, we took into custody a woman with 
an expired license plate, and suspended license. Since the 
lady was taken into custody we had to impound the car and 
take inventory. While checking the vehicle the officer found 
marijuana paraphernalia that she said she was holding for 
her boyfriend. This day was a great opportunity for me to 
see all different aspects of what a patrol officer's duty requires 
of him. I am very thankful for this experience.

"Do what has to be done, When it has 
to be done, And as well as it can be 
done." Whether it be stressing the goal 
of a compiled team GPA of 3.0 or above, 
pressing on through the rigorous train- 
ing sessions each week, or filing out onto 
New Scotland Yard or onto the 
opposition's unfamiliar surroundings to 
play the world's most loved game, the '97 
Scots looked to this above phrase as a 
simple reminder towards team ambition. 

With nine returning starters, the team 
pledged to accept nothing less from 
themselves than another TVAC cham- 
pionship followed by a trip to the Mid- 
South Region tournament. This feat had 
not occurred since the '94 season. High- 
lighted by two late strikes by Matt Cobb 
in a 2-2 tie against rival Berry College, a 
3-1 comeback victory against Lee Uni- 
versity, and a soccer fan stampede follow- 
ing a Jackson Alexander bending a 20- 
yard gamewinner in a 2-1 win against 
Tennessee Wesleyan, the Scots would 
end their 18 game regular season as the 
TVAC first seed. This allowed the team 
to play host for the conference tourna- 
ment in which they would first defeat 
King College 2-0 in the semi-final. In 
the TVAC final, dealing with a sloppy 

playing surface due to rain and with the 
November mountain chill, the Scots 
would raise the trophy once again, 3-1 
winners against Milligan College. The 
team would later bow out against two- 
time defending NAIA National Cham- 
pion Lindsey Wilson College. 

The Scots posted a 13-5-3 record on 
the year, and Brian Crossman was named 
TVAC Coach of the year. Josh Good, 
Ian Mattice, and Todd McMillan were 
voted onto the All-Conference First 
team, and Matt Cobb and Anthony 
Tucker were secon team selections. Ian 
Mattice was placed on the All-South 
Region team, and NAIA Scholar Ath- 
lete All-Americans were Josh Good, 
Matt Kimbrell, and Chris Moore. This 
year's team was powered by consistent 
defensive play, active senior leadership, 
and offensive output by Matt Cobb, Ri- 
chard Brown, and Jackson Alexander. 

Special thanks go out to Dave Fish 
for keeping our Yard the best playing 
surface we saw all season, Gurney for an 
excellent job in the Sports Medicine 
department, and to every Covenant 
Soccer fan - you help make each home 
match unforgetable.

Doing it all alone... Freshman Monique Good 
provided solid play in the middle . Many of the

and the Lady Scots look forward to a strong season 
next year. 

The Lady Scots past soccer season was 
one of exciting new beginnings as a num- 
ber of promising new freshmen joined the 
team. Along with the new beginnings, 
however, came the end of a four-year stint 
that will not soon be forgotten. 

This year's graduating seniors represent 
the group of freshmen that joined 
Covenant's first year program in 1994- 
The women's program has come quite a 
long way since its humble beginnings as 
a club soccer team. And much thanks is 
due to those graduating seniors for this 
progress. The leadership and godly ex- 
ample set by seniors Kim Brock, Rachel 
Jiminez, Polly Johnson, Beth Owens, Jill 
Hancock, and Lisa Fish is one that will 
not be quickly or easily replaced. 

The 1997 season was a successful one 
over all. Despite nagging injuries rang- 
ing from shin splints to a knee surgery for 
Maija I verts. The team was able to finish 
the season considerably strong, with a 
record of eleven wins and six losses. For 
the graduating bunch, this season's record 

combined with the past three years' total 
equals an overall record of forty-three 
wins, twenty-three losses, and one tie. 
Within conference play, the seniors' 
record for four years was twenty-three 
wins and only four losses. As well, a num- 
ber of players received conference and 
regional recognition. Rachel Jiminez, 
Lisa Fish, Kim Brock, and Jill Hancock 
all received All-Conference honors. 
Brock and Hancock were also awarded 
positions of the All-South team. In ad- 
dition, Melissa Stanton was awarded 
Acedemic All-American honors. 

As the seniors have stepped down and 
the underclassmen step up, there is an 
anticipation of a wealth of promising sea- 
sons to come. Those who started out with 
the program four years ago will be greatly 
missed both on and off the field, but trust 
that the wealth of talent and character 
evident in the lives and attitudes of the 
underclassmen will provide the leadership 
necessary to be successful in the coming

throughout it. The upper-

Most times when you ask a player how 
their season was, you laugh when they say 
that it was a rebuilding year. But it really 
was for the women's varsity volleyball 
team. With only three returning players 
and seven total players, the Lady Scots 
were in for a rough season. Blessed with 
no injuries, the Lady Scots took on the 
TVAC with gusto. Under second year 
coach Kimberly Hays, the Lady Scots won 
the first women's volleyball tournament 
in almost twelve years. Playing at Judson 
College in Alabama, the Scots swept the 
tournament with four wins and no losses. 
Sophomore Missy Taylor, was named to 
the All-Tournament team, while Senior 
Captain Allison Fekete was named the 
Tournament Most Valuable Player. 

It was a frustrating season, in spite of 
their hard work, for the Lady Scots. With 
only seven players, practices were tough 
and scrimmaging was even tougher. It was 
not uncommon to see some of the guys 

from around campus helping out at their 
practices. The Lady Scots would like to 
thank Dave Franklin, Andy Gast, and 
Josh Keck for their help throughout the 

Although the Scots had some trouble 
putting everything together as a team, 
four players were honored individually 
in the conference. Allison Fekete was 
named to the All Tournament Team for 
the N AI A conference tournament, and 
she was second in the conference for 
assists and third in the conference for 
serving percentage. Junior Sarah 
Franklin was second in the conference 
for blocking and third in the conference 
for kills. Sophomore Jenny Davis was 
second in the conference for digs and 
Freshman Kimberly Johnson was fifth in 
the conference for blocks. Overall, the 
Lady Scots finished with a record of 16- 
1 1 overall, 3-9 in conference.

The Covenant Scots ended the 
'97-'98 season with an overall 
record of 9-15. Injuries to key play- 
ers early in the season forced the 
Scots to adjust their style of play 
and constantly change their start- 
ing line-up late into the season. 
The Scots continued to play hard 
finishing third in the TVAC in 
team defense, and second in 
rebounding. Consistency at the 
free throw line placed the Scots in 
fifth in the NAIA and first in the 
TVAC in free throw percentage. 

Junior point guard Brian Court 
was named to the first team all- 
conference as a result of his excel- 
lent play and leadership, and was 
also named an all-American 
scholar athlete with a 3.88 GPA. 
He was sixth in the TVAC in scor- 
ing (17.7ppg), third in free throw 

percentage (84%), sixth in three 
point field goal percentage (42%), 
eleventh in field goal percentage 
(47%), eleventh in average assists 
(3.0), and twelth in average steals 

Senior captain Matt Davis also 
had an excellent season, finishing 
fourth in the TVAC in rebound- 
ing (7-4), ninth in field goal per- 
centage (58%). 

Overall, the team struggled 
throughout the season due to 
injury, but they still played hard 
and did well under difficult 
circumstances. With the return of 
injured players Jake Walls and 
Mark Fields and three of this year's 
starters, the Scots are looking for- 
ward to a good season next year.

feated Bluefield, but lost in the sec- 
ond round to Tennessee Wesleyan 
by only one point. 

Many of the Lady Scots were 
honored for their impressive season. 
Kristy Clark led the N AIA in indi- 
vidual scoring with 26 points per 
game and was named along with 
Charity Anderson to the TVAC 
all-conference team. Crystal 
Anderson, who finished eighteenth 

in the NAIA in rebounds, was

Joanna Hessenbruch was also hon-

year with big contributions, and 
the Lady Scots will look to them 
even more next year as they seek

ity and Crystal Anderson. With 
no players sheduled to graduate 
after next season, there are high 
hopes for continued success in the

GLAD Tutoring was a

New City Fellowship. Es-

with her in order to get 
Covenant students in- 
volved. At the beginning 
of the year, there were just 
a faithful few that went 
down to help, but as the 
year went on more and 
more students began to tu- 
tor. While the main goal 
was to help kids with their 
schoolwork, many impor- 
tant bonds were made be- 
tween the kids and their 
tutors. Friendships began 
and trust was formed. 


Celebrating a Challenging Semester... After 
working so hard all semester, Esther Potoshnick

Driving up to a dilapi- 
dated house, you pray that 
tonight you will finally get 
through all the rough walls 
that your new friend has 
put up. While this young 
teenage girl has had a life 
of disappointment, anger, 
and hurt, you pray that 
through constant love, per- 
severance, and God's grace, 
your new friend will turn to 
the Father for love and 
consistent friendship. The 
members of the Urban 
Young Life team formed 
friendships with teenagers 
from the inner city so that 
these teenagers could see 
the love of God. 

While it was tough 
working with these teenag- 
ers, it was a great opportu- 
nity to see more of how 
God works and join along 
side Him as He works in 
these kids' lives. "God 
continually taught us the 
meaning of unconditional 
love, as well as opening our 
eyes to the reality of the gift 
God has given us in broth-

President Bill Clinton was the first 
Democratic president in 60 years to be 
elected to a second term. Under his presi- 
dency, the United States enjoyed the low- 
est rate of inflation since the early 1960's, 
and he was the first president in 1 7 years 
to submit a balanced budget to Congress. 

But Clinton soon found himself on the 
defensive. It began when Democrats were 
put under investigation for running an il- 
legal fund raising campaign in the 1996 
presidential campaign. Then in January 
1998, allegations were presented that 
Clinton coerced Monica Lewinsky to lie 
under oath about their relationship dur- 
ing the Paula Jones sexual harrassment 

As Clinton's character was being chal- 
lenged in the United States, the Presi- 
dent was also dealing with the threat of 
war in Iraq. 

United States Secretary of State 
Madeleine K. Albright was the highest 
ranking woman in the history of the US 
government, and she was admired by re- 
spected diplomatic corps. The on-going 
troubles in the Middle East kept the 60- 
year-old diplomat busy from the day she 
was sworn- in to the top job at the State 

Yasser Arafat was chairman of the Pal- 
estine Liberation Organization and presi- 
dent of the Palestinian National Author- 
ity who played an important role in the 
Middle East peace process. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin 
Netanyahu rejected the land-for-peace 
bargain with the Palestinians which led 
to dozens of deaths by terrorists through- 
out Israel. In the summer of 1997, two 
suicide bombings in Jerusalem, claimed 
by the militant Muslim group Hamas, 
drove Netanyahu to halt peace proceed- 
ings indefinitely.

In the month of September 1997 two 
international figures' lives ended. On 
September 5, at the age of 87, Nobel 
Peace Prize winner Mother Theresa died 
of heart failure. Mother Theresa was 
known through her work with the poor, 
the sick and the dying all around the 
world. She worked through the religious 
order of Roman Catholic nuns that she 
founded called the Missionaries of Char- 

Also in September, Diana, Princess of 
Wales, was killed in a car crash in Paris. 
The country had witnessed an astonish- 
ing outpouring of grief that was felt all 
around the world. More than a million 
bouquets of flowers were stacked outside 
the royal palaces.

Space exploration had its successes and 
its disappointments. The roving vehicle 
Sojourner, the first mobile explorer to 
land on another planet, landed on Mars 
in 1997 and gathered soil and rocks. The 
Sojourner left the Mars Pathfinder land- 
ing cratt that transmitted a flood of in- 
formation to scientists back on Earth. 

The space station Mir was launched 
in 1986 and has been in orbit tor nearly 
12 years. The joint US-Russian missions 
have been plagued with continual prob- 
lems, but the station is scheduled to he 
in orbit by the year 2002.

Jewel began writing songs when she was 17. Now, at 23, she's a star. Her firl 
album, "Pieces of You," was released in 1995 and became an instant and prolonged 
hit, spending well over a year on the top charts. She was raised in Alaska where she 
began performing at the age of five. Her junior and senior year in high school were 
spent at the Interlochen Fine Arts Academy in Michigan. She then went to Sal 
Diego, which she now calls home. However, Jewel makes a point of maintaining i

The Dave Matthews Band has dem- 
onstrated over the course of three albums 
and several years of extensive touring 
that it has staying power on the record 
charts. Combining elements of rock, 
jazz, funk, folk, and worldbeat, the group 
is soulful and subtle in its harmonies and 
rhythms. Dave Matthews was born in 
Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved 
to Virginia about 10 years ago. He 
formed the group in 1990. They had in- 
tended to come up with a "proper" name 
for the group, but the name stuck before 
they had time to change it.

This has been another year of significant change for Covenant College. It is in fact the first year that we have ever had two 
buildings going up at the same time. In addition to the construction, we added the largest number of faculty that we've ever 
added in a single year - five new faculty, not including Dr. Barker who returned to the classroom. 

You have been a part of Covenant's growth and progress, and in the final analysis you are the most important part. The 
faculty, the facilities, the changes in the curriculum all reflect our commitment to trying to give the student the very best 
education we can possibly give. 

There are some signs that a cultural shift is beginning to take place. There has actually been a national decrease in crime. 
Many of our leaders seem to be more concerned about the family, and there seems to be strong national support for the fight 
against drug abuse. 

The overall strength of the economy masks our most serious problems, however, and I believe that students who try to live 
according to biblical worldview will be more challenged than ever. I think you will find that you will have many opportuni- 
ties if you're willing to work hard, be full of integrity and seek to serve the needs of others. It is our prayer that you will have 
learned at Covenant the importance of careful analysis, good communication and strong relationships. We hope that you 
have learned to learn, because in a rapidly changing world this may be the single most important attribute you could possess 
other than your faith. Most importantly, I hope that you will have learned how to know and understand God's Word and 
apply it in a variety of situations. If so, you will have many opportunities to be salt and light in post-Christian America. 

Thank you for your involvement as a student. I hope that you will not forget the college. It is important that you continue 
to support us as we grow and as we seek to serve future generations of students. We pray God's richest blessings upon you and 
we hope that you will come and visit often. 

In Christ, 

Frank A. Brock

College Hymn 

All for Jesus! 

All for Jesus! 

All my being's ransomed power; 

All my thoughts and words and doings; 

all my days and all my hours. 

Let my hands perform His bidding; 

Let my feet run in His ways; 

Let mine eyes see Jesus only; 

Let my lips speak forth His praise. 

Worldlings prize their gems of beauty, 

Cling to gilded toys of dust; 

Boast of wealth and fame and pleasure ~ 

Only Jesus will I trust 

Since Mine eyes were fixed on Jesus, 

I've lost sight of all beside, 

So enchained my spirit's vision, 

Looking at the crucified. 

Oh what wonder! How amazing! 
Jesus, glorious King of kings, 
Deigns to call me His beloved, 

Lets me rest beneath His wings.
